These Planning Tips Will Help You Get Your Dream Bathroom

Bathroom Planning

You may have been dreaming about your perfect bathroom for a long time and are finally ready to start planning. A redesigned bathroom can increase your home’s overall value and greatly add to the enjoyment of your home, so consider it to be a significant undertaking!

But where should you begin? This article will get you thinking about the most important steps to getting your dream bathroom.

Think About How You Use It

Before you begin your bathroom remodel, you need to think about how you use it. Is your bathroom a quick stop during your busy mornings, or do you use it as a space to relax? Experts advise that you don’t skimp on functional items like the toilet, faucets, countertops, cabinets, or flooring; these should all provide plenty of function and be able to handle regular use and traffic with ease.

Once you’ve identified these primary functions, you’ll be ready for the next step, which is to think about how your new bathroom design will allow functionality and style to combine.

Balance Is Crucial

Concentrating only on the stylishness of your bathroom will limit its functionality, just as thinking solely about functionality will take away from your bathroom’s style. The best bathroom for you will be the one that balances both.

Ensure that your new bathroom will have all the essentials you need before splurging on style. Remember that adding small and subtle details in your bathroom renovations can have just as much impact as outfitting the room top to bottom.

Plan Your Bathroom

Your Budget

Unless money isn’t a consideration, you will need to figure out how much you have to spend on your dream bathroom. The most important thing you can do at this stage is to be realistic. For example, do you really need expensive flooring, or can you get something very similar of high quality for less?

Another important thing to realize is that your estimated costs will fluctuate. Your redesign will likely end up costing you more than you planned. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t rein it in. It’s completely possible to keep your overages within a reasonable range. The general rule for bathroom renovations is to add 30% to your original budget as a cushion.

Understanding what products are out there is the key to sound planning, so do your homework and find out what’s available by researching online, visiting a trade show or looking through a magazine. Write down the names of items and styles you really love. Don’t be afraid to throw caution to the wind; after all, this is your ‘dream list.’

Once your dream list is complete, create a second list of these items with their prices. Then, eliminate any items which you don’t feel you absolutely need, as well as those which won’t fit your budget.

Look at the Rest of Your Home for Inspiration

Another way to choose which elements will have the most impact on your bathroom ideas is to look at the rest of your home. Incorporating these well-loved colors and textures into your renovation will provide both continuity and comfort.

Decide Whether or Not to Do It Yourself

The question that plagues many homeowners is whether or not to hire a contractor. After all, you already know exactly what you want and need, and you may be quite confident about doing the renovations yourself. Besides, contractors can take a big bite out of your budget.

Unfortunately, being confident is not enough to ensure success; it’s important to understand your limitations and abilities and be realistic about them. Things like installing or refinishing your tub or shower, changing your bathroom’s layout, and cutting holes in walls and running new wires for lighting are all jobs for a contractor, unless you have a lot of experience.

Hiring a professional can be daunting; you’ll need to be willing to let them take the reins and trust that their experience will get you the results you’re looking for.

Whatever your decision, keeping your desired end result in mind and exercising patience will go a long way to helping you get the bathroom of your dreams.
